Send a free photo book to your deployed soldier

Standard

In honor of Father’s day and because my husband is spending his Father’s Day in Iraq I wanted to share this great program through the USO and Rocketlife.  This one is for the family to make something special for the soldier.  I made one for my husband, and he loved it.  It is small enough to carry around in their cargo pockets yet large enough that you can fit over 60 photos.  It took about 2 weeks for my husband to receive his, which is pretty quick.  So if you want to do something nice for your soldier, send him a bunch of home photos he is sure to love, and the best part it’s absolutely FREE!

United through reading Free program for deployed soldiers and children

Standard

Recently my children received packages in the mail from their Daddy who is in Afghanistan.  Inside the packages were books, and with the books were DVD’s of their Daddy reading them the books.  They were both super excited to see Daddy, and to get new books.

Let’s pretend my bed was made shall we? It would have been except my children immediately wanted to see their Daddy and I wasn’t going to stop them, so I waited and it was worth it.  The looks on their faces were priceless.

The program is awesome, and they have some great books.   It really does help soldiers connect with their munchkins from far away, and what child doesn’t like getting a package especially from another country.

If you have a deployed soldier or know someone who does, have them ask about this program or if their is a USO near them, they can also use this link to get more information 🙂

Project Pillow Free program for deployed service members and children

Standard

This program rocks my socks! The create a free pillow with a picture of the deployed soldier and the child, They will do multiples if you have more than one child, and you can send a different picture for each.  It is absolutely free, although if you have it you can donate towards shipping costs.  My children both love their pillows and sleep with them every night.
